USCG Auxilliary


Published 1940


During a wartime emergency, the ships of the Coast Guard were supplemented by hundreds of civil craft. Outfitted as Coast Guard Auxilliary craft, these pleasure cruisers were tasked with such tasks as spotting enemy U-boats, and rescuing crews of ships sunk in the Battle of the Atlantic. This rare film, made as a recruiting tool for this special service, discusses how it all works.
